NEW YORK (AP) — Lindsay Lohan‘s mother says her daughter’s treatment for addiction at the Betty Ford Clinic has been “life-changing.”

Dina Lohan says the world-renowned addiction center in Rancho Mirage, Calif., is “an amazing place” that has really dug into the ‘Mean Girl’ actress’ problems and brought them to the surface. She said Lindsay, who was seen shopping on an approved outing over the weekend, is happy and relaxed.
